    I will wait to be sure (or will wait for updates) that PTA and Active Sky work with this new 4.1. Im waiting for any news/changelog.

    I am looking forward to this as with my new Video card I can join the party . I read somewhere that this may be a full install due to the number of updates... time will tell. Haven't had P3D since V2 so I am hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

    Perhaps after the update 4.1 we will see the news about official support of FTX addons with new OF2:

    Hello,beta testing has finished.
    If you want to opt in now, you will have the virtually finished product and FTX Central version 3.2.2.8

    This article says 4.1 will NOT be a full install. Nevertheless I won’t upgrade until I know all my addons are safe.

    Do you guys think we're going to see PBR in P3D at some point? Maybe v5? Anyone in the know?

    I have a lot of time invested in the current V4, which is spectacular, and I am not anxious to do a complete re-install.
    That said, I know I'll do it, so what I just said is Bollocks.

    I have located all of my third party assets to add-ons folders outside the main sim, so the re-installs are actually relatively painless at this stage of the game. Still..I always hold my breath a bit.

    Does anyone know how P3Dv4 will update? Will it be an auto-update like Steam (P3Dv4 starts updating as soon
    as the update is available and you start the sim), or will the update be selectable at my convenience?

    I came directly to v4 from FSX, so I don't know how LM has done these in the past.

    Thanks - Rob

    P3D doesn't auto update. The new version will be available via your downloads links.
    The scope of the update dictates whether you can update modules or do an complete re-install.

    Thanks for the reply. I will probably do then just like I do with new Nvidia drivers: let the more knowledgeable and
    adventurous have first crack at the update and see what their experiences are.

    So far this initial version of v4 has been working very well for me, much better than FSX. I will be interested in
    seeing what the update brings.

    Thanks again - Rob

    The jump to a 64bit platform is a big commitment, and is definitely worth approaching with due diligence. That said, for those coming directly in from FSX, V4 does offer a very stable and well organized platform that accommodates updates without the headaches associated with earlier simulations.

    Rob, a quote from the link delmos posted above

    [...]

    Matt has made it very clear that it doesn’t require a full install and confirms that you’ll have to update the individual components (client, content and scenery). He is creating a video to help make the process as easy as possible to update, which when released, we’ll share as well to support you with the process.

    [...]

    I'm sure the video mentioned will help newcomers, and we at SOH are also a helpful bunch :-)

    Ugh...didn't want to hear that it will be for scenery as well. Guess I'll read up on UTX/GEP3D reinstall procedures.

  17. #17
    We don't know enough yet.
    In the past changes in the scenery part often meant the fixing of some anomalies in some places, which were superfluous if you used another product in that area anyhow. You could might as well skip that or postpone it to a later major release.

    We'll know, soon!

    Scenery fixes:

    Prepar3D Scenery
    Fixes and Improvements

    - Fixed missing textures in St. Louis Adams Mark
    - Removed invisible objects that could cause vehicle to crash at KBWI


    --> only needed when you fly there, have crash detection on, have a problem with it, and no third party add on that covers it already.

    Most interesting to me is:

    Added support for 4k Virtual Cockpit (VC) textures

    I say wow! I think I have to remap my VC building efforts :-)

    HiFi released updates for ASP4 and ASCA, but no release notes for them, not sure if they cover 4.1.

  21. #21
    Well, that was kind of a bust. Updated the client, VC textures are gorgeous, everything works fine after updating the HiFi products, but no VC rain working on the default aircraft. Windshield effects are enabled, special effects settings at Max, nothing. Boo!

    Edited: Never mind. I only installed the Client, not the Content and Scenery updates. Not worth messing with those for one airport and rain effects in aircraft I don't fly. Oh well, happy with the VC textures, anyway.

    Us Simmers are a bunch of masochists

    Gamers pay their money download, install and away they go wheeeeeee.

    Us lot, pay or money download, install and spend the rest of the day (sometimes longer tweaking the damned thing, then adding upgrades, aircraft, scenery. We need our heads examined.

    So today I plumped for 4.1 having not had P3D since 2.5. I now have a suitable Video card and RAM to enjoy apparently.

    Quick d/l yaaaay. Quite quick install... Hurrah.

    Configure ..... uh oh..... joystick not fully understood. The HAT Switch is not recognized. Then the long search for what is wrong .... after 2 hours I discover that unlike FSX which works out the box with just about every joystick that I know of this P3D has a setting under Options/ Other/ Input Method - check DirectInput instead of Raw Input and it works. Whoop-de-do!

    This relates to the excellent VKB Gladiator II joystick (maybe others too). Now I just have to find a solution why Pseudo Full Screen won't work. Why so you say? Well I use multiple monitors and I like to have a moving map and other planning tools etc on another monitor but Alt/Enter for full screen blacks out the other monitors. Research needed but I am exhausted and haven't even flown this damned thing yet.

    So if anyone has any suggestions please feel free re Pseudo

    Yaaaay! worked it out all on my lonesome. No need for Pseudo Full Screen in P3D. Under settings go into display & uncheck black out desktop. The Alt& Enter as per usual for Full screnn but now I have access to my Second & Third monitors for running Plan-G, or Opus or PFPX or AivlaSoft.

    Time to fly......

    Oh hang on I am being called to dinner now....

    I opted for the month to month Developers License, as I have been doing with V2 and V3.
    Downloading tonight, tomorrow AM I should have the package and install...barring power outages or alien invasions, or even worse...Windows 10 updates.

    I've invested a lot of time dialing in the new GPU, and know where performance is, and should be in the updated sim.
    All of the other bits that want to be plugged in to 4.1 are on deck. Hopefully the install will be straight up plug and play. I'm anxious to see what new bits await.

    AS works fine, Orbx libraries required a reinstall the only that I cant get to work, is PTA, but MD knows and is working on a fix

    all other addons appear to be fine

    just remember to uninstall the client and content and reinstall the new 2, dont forget to download con1 and con2 cab files as well

    its running very well on 8 cores with the new hyper threading supported, ive can seen a huge improvement with no stutters
